Tax Lawyer Serving Port St. Lucie
Many people may not be aware that tax laws have a statute of limitations. This statute of limitations goes both ways, it gives taxpayers a limited amount of time in which they can claim a tax refund and it gives the IRS a limited amount of time for which they can collect past-due taxes. There are however, certain restrictions that apply according to the date when your taxes were due (tax refunds) and when the tax debt was finalized (regarding the 10 year limit on back taxes). For example, the time period for which a tax refund can be collected begins on the original date when the tax was initially due, plus 3 years. So, this means that if the taxes were due on April 15th, 2015, then you would be able to claim your refund up to April 15th, 2018. This is an important factor to consider especially if you have delayed filing taxes for any reason and have a refund coming back to you.
